Every Saturday at 17:00 UTC. The time in your local time and a countdown-timer should be in the top of the site though.
Right here! Joining our Discord server is however a good idea.
No. Keep working on your game until it's done, then submit.
You are free to use premade assets but it is recommended that you make at least one game from scratch. Some assets are provided on the Assets page but you do not have to use them.
Yes, you'll need to host the game and submit the links here. We host the thumbnail though. If you don't have a website yourself, use something like dropbox / google drive, or itch.io / newgrounds. Ask on Discord for more suggestions.
Officially, not much. As a non-competitive jam there is no designated winner, but people occasionally host streams to showcase all of the games. This is volunteer-based and unofficial however, so keep an eye on the Discord. Want to stream? Set up your twitch username in user settings and press the "Become Streamer" button after a jam concludes. Your twitch stream will then appear on the site.
If you finish and submit your game before the stream ends, we'll play it on stream, even if it took you more than an hour to finish.
If you come late you can still participate. If the stream is over, then your game won't be played on-stream, obviously, but we'll still keep it on the site!
You retain full ownership / copyright / yadda yadda. If you get a BAFTA make sure to mention us in your acceptance speech though :D
Team entries are allowed but currently not supported by the website. Please keep in mind that it can be challenging to manage a team within an hour.
